Presentation by the artist:

" Fable invites us to seek in everything the overthrow of the known, to call on vertigo, excess, unreason, in order to reconnect with nature and limitlessness, in a brutal confrontation with what is. The photographic gesture tends here towards the visceral and the origin.

It is a photographic meditation on the duality of the human being, between elevation and cruelty, between contemplation and experience, between humility and hubris."
